democratic oppositions to murderous dictatorships whether it's by sil all whether it's the assad regime in syria but the brutal murder of james foley has raised other all good questions for the government namely the growing number of britons fighting alongside jihadists around four hundred thought to have taken up arms in syria and iraq and some experts believe it's a tide that will be difficult to reverse the counter extremism units have not been very effective and the reason they're not very effective is because they're dealing in a framework which they cannot change they cannot change the social situation of many young minority brits in this country they cannot change the foreign policy of great britain and given the. limitations it's on surprising that they have been unable to fix the situation on their own last year britain was shocked by the horrific killing of british soldier lee rigby and inside his london barracks hacked to death by two u.k. nationals who converted to islam and claimed they were avenging the deaths of

7:27 am
just the other week on the program we discussed how it's technically legal but not very motivating to impose a curfew on to minors but now that adults are protesting in ferguson missouri the government is placing a curfew on them i'd like to make a small speculation warding this curfew is probably an excuse to break up the protesters once you disperse angry people a lot of their energy to protest is also dispersed but let's think about this if you take a look at the constitution and there are two effective hours listed it doesn't say works from nine to five minutes just because crowd control the darkness is much more difficult and scary for the police doesn't mean that your ability to protest vanishes along with the sun in the evening regardless of whether you agree with the protesters or whether you agree with the idea of protesting at night or not i think is beyond question that you cannot impose a curfew on adults in the united states just because the last two prison seats have used the constitution as toilet paper does not make it somehow invalid at night but that's just my opinion.
